I know something changes in our bodies  every 20, 000 years

The next evolutionary change is to become a ghost or ever-lasting life.

to me is why our bodies can change from the environment.?

I don't believe humans are not going to be around long enough to evolve much more.

We don't need to outcompete any more. And we don't have to fit into niches. So there's little reason for us to change as we are suited to our niche. Sharks and alligators have changed very little over millions of years for this very reason. They have adapted well to their environment and are difficult to outcompete naturally. Any new adaption is unlikely to offer a significant advantage for us to survive so its highly unlikely.

   Hmm,   Thanks for the explanation psyche. , competition is the only driving factor in adaptions and change?  That makes me wonder what effect, if any, Lack of competition might have on our development. ? But, as you say, sharks and alligators don't seem to have suffered from such a long lasting beneficent environmental relationship. I honestly wonder if we may have De-volved to some degree...since life has gotten "easier" .   ?  Maybe not...maybe people just seem to be getting stupider.

Pretty much best fit for purpose. The best fit survives  LOL, that's quite possible......

...I thought of an example of human change that may not be linked to competition or survival of the fittest.    ?? If there is no reason for change because we have found our "niche" and are so perfectly suited to our environment....why do people continue to get taller ?       I have seen ancient Japanese and European suits of armor which are very short.    Are humans so warlike that the tallest (and therefore having the longest arms/reach) survivors pass on their lankiness??  That seems an unlikely answer are people getting taller?   "Out competing" doesn't seem to be the answer?
